Some Non-Muslim youths from Haryana disguised as Muslims, who, for the last two years, had been running a racket of hoodwinking poor Muslims into marrying off their daughters with them and taking those girls with them to Haryana and Rajasthan for flesh trade and later selling them in metros like Delhi, have been arrested in Nanded.
The debunking of this racket has caused unrest and anger among the Muslims here.
The members of this racket were caught red-handed at a time when they were negotiating with some poor Muslims, who somehow smelled the rat and started investigating about them just to know to their utter chagrin that they were not Muslims! The Muslims handed them over to the police.
Acting on a formal complaint filed by a poor Muslim woman of Iqbal Nagar, the police registered a case against and arrested the members of this racket, who had been identified as Mohan Lal, Dalit Ram, Chandra Shekhar and others.
Some of the Muslim girls who had been thus exploited during the last two years somehow succeeded in shaking themselves off the net of the racket and reaching their parents here. They did tell their parents the ignominy they had to suffer but the latter could not gather courage to bring the case to light. But, as the Providence would have it, no sooner the news of debunking of the racket spread some such cases are coming to light.
Muslims have demanded from the government to investigate into the matter sincerely and deeply.
